For years the Danish island of Samsø has been carbon neutral. It generates more energy from renewable resources than its residents need. Still, the island isn't entirely eco-friendly.Generating electricity from 11 wind turbines and heat from four power stations which burn straw and wood, Samsø's 4000 residents are completely energy self-sufficient. The island has become a model renewable energy project for communities around the globe. However the island is only considered to be carbon neutral because its emissions are balanced out by its excess energy production. The cars and tractors driven on the island still run on diesel or gasoline. However, that's about to change.
